Team Bee-Witched earns top marks in community spelling bee

Event raises $12,425 for Shuswap literacy programs

A loquacious group of Salmon Arm word nerds came together for a morning of coffee, costumes and spelling.

More than a dozen teams competed in the sixth annual spelling bee fundraiser hosted by the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) on May 8 at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort.

The Silverquacks, a team comprised of doctors from Salmon Arm, came in second while Bee-Witched took the gold for the fifth time.
